Leica SL for ballet. Roméo et Juliette

A few days ago I shot something that most people never get to see: a dress rehearsal of a brand new production in a world class theatre. It is exactly what Leica SL was created for. 90-280/2.8-4 lens performed flawlessly: AF was fast and precise; colors were good, despite a very complex and constantly changing lighting setup.

Leica SL light sensitivity is solid, but not something to write home about, considering what competition has to offer: images shot at or below ISO6400 did not require much in terms of noise suppression. ISO12500 is marginally usable, as images require significant post-production.
